England skipper Jos Buttler has made a big statement ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022 Final against Pakistan. The two teams are set go head-to-head once again at the same venue after 30 long years in a final of an ICC tournament.
But ahead of this all-important game, Jos Buttler has cleared his stance on his future in England cricket. The 32-year-old in the pre-match press conference on Saturday (November 12) said that he has some more years left before calling of his time in cricket.
"Yeah I see that as that point you know hopefully, I've got more time ahead of myself and as a captain, I with Matthew Mott we can hopefully shape the new sort of as I say era of English white ball cricket", Jos Buttler said when asked about his retirement. Notably, this is Jos Buttler’s first World Cup assignment at the helm of the team.
Talking about T20 World Cup 2022, England won their first game in the campaign against Afghanistan by 5 wickets with 11 balls to spare. However, in their very next game they lost to Ireland by DLS Method in a rain-curtailed game. But their most awaited game in the tournament against defending champions Australia was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
The Three Lions now enter the final on a three-match winning streak. In their last game, the England openers dominated the game as they build a 170-run opening partnership to help England win the game to progress into the final with four overs left.
